Two weeks after a man destroyed President Trump's star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, the West Hollywood City Council passed a resolution to have the star removed, according to a tweet by West Hollywood's mayor.
Mayor John Duran tweeted on Monday: “West Hollywood City council unanimously passes resolution asking the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star on Hollywood Walk of Fame."
Trump was honored with a star on the prestigious stretch of Hollywood Boulevard in 2007 at the peak of his 'Apprentice' reality show run.
On July 25, Trump's star was destroyed with a pickax wielded by 24-year-old Austin Clay. He pleaded not guilty to one charge of vandalism and his bail was set at $20,000.
The star was previously vandalized in October 2016 by James Otis, who offered to pay Clay's bail. Otis was sentenced to 3 years probation, community labor, and ordered to pay $4,000 in damages.
West Hollywood's resolution asks the City of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove Trump's star “due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions.”
Interestingly, West Hollywood's mayor John Duran was accused of sexual harassment by an employee he originally hooked up with on the gay dating app Grindr while he was a city councilman.
Duran failed to disclose this information to the city's to human resources department when he referred the man for a job as his deputy assistant in 2012. The city's insurance carrier paid the employee a settlement of $500,000.
